Gallery: Hedgehog Concert Pavilion Makes Traffic Cones Beautiful

efgh, hedgehog, traffic, traffic cones

Traffic cones often signal some sort of disaster or messy construction zone, but NYC architecture firm EFGH has managed to upcycle the orange cones into something beautiful with this 15×15′ Hedgehog concert pavilion. The whole thing can be constructed in just six hours, and by using already-manufactured traffic cones the architecture firm saved considerable costs on materials.

EFGH was given a short amount of time to make a stage for a Virgin Mobile event intended to raise awareness about youth homelessness. The result: a festive pop-up pavilion made from a steel frame studded with traffic cones. Check out the video below to see the pavilion being constructed.
